A very nice, solid level. I managed to get all three endings. There is one screen which might have reached lunatic difficulty for me:

The plot was good, the environments meshed together very well, the changes between days were well executed, as were the cutscenes, and the sounds are all excellent.

Without a doubt the best new level I've played in months.

I went ahead and made a demo of the idea. I tried to keep it as simple as possible for those who want to see and learn.

Oh... My... YOU made the example level!? Wha!?

Edit: I'll go check how many shots o' that cannon it takes until i get bored.

@ Gorfinhofin: 7 Days a Skeptic, is that the one in space? I'm sure I played it. Never played Lovecraft. Neither of them influenced this game. The music choices came from the fact that most of the game uses ambiance only. I wanted something natural sounding. Both tracks use a single acoustic instruments, drums or guitar. The Spanish guitar choice was influenced by, if anything, my love for The Doors. The tribal drum track was then added to make the other track feel more natural. I felt that if the player didn't hear music until the end of the game, the music would jolt them. I had to have music in the castle though, because wind and fire didn't fill the sound-scape enough. The caves had the same problem, so it was natural to add music there too.

@StraightFlame: I blatantly omitted that. I have too much self-esteem, and I try not too do anything that could be construed as bragging.

Lovecraft is a writer.

And he's the inspiration for such great levels as The Outsider and It Waits (which was so inspiring to me I made a LittleBigPlanet loosely based on it).
Menagerie - 25%
Skyline Spires - 5%
A Golden Hymn - 0%

The Great Machine, Antikythera, which grinds the blood of men into history.

Yes. It has the same song.

Oh, that Lovecraft. I read "a Lovecraft story" like "A Lovecraft Story." I need to read more carefully I guess. I didn't believe it, so I had to look it up. 7 Days a Skeptic does use the same music. It's a piano midi version and it sounds terrible, but it's hard to beat a 27k file size.

Hurray! My work has been YouTubed! To me, that's as good as receiving a hidden star. Genius is a bit over the top, but thanks for saying.

I checked my statistics today and discovered that auntie pixelante gave me a short but positive review. There's a lot of interesting game making discussion there for those who are interested.

maybe later, when i'm energized and concentrated (e.g. caffeinated) enough, i'll record a video of getting to the bonus bonus ending without dying too many times. screen with spikes over mushrooms is the obvious bottleneck.

man, this was so cool, and I never noticed this until now! :/ :D
although I have no idea where either of the secret endings could be...
but the "lame" cutscene style made me laugh a lot, I think it's awesome. :]
